  • Perfect escape for families or writers

    "We spent a delightful week at this lovely lake house in early August. A phenomenal book collection and artwork from around Asia give this old Victorian a lot of character and charm. Yet, the place isn’t so fancy or fragile that you’re worried about having kids visit. The caretaker was responsive, super friendly and gave great recommendations. (Elegant Farmer, a short drive from here, has the best apple pie I’ve ever tasted!) My young kids caught panfish and bass off the pier every day. The water there is clear and shallow enough that you can see the fish eyeing the bait. We rented kayaks and explored the lake. On our next trip we hope to paddle all the way to Lake Lulu, a no-wake DNR lake that's supposed to be gorgeous. For those who prefer swimming in pools to lakes, there’s a wonderful newer YMCA nearby in Mukwonago that has a zero-depth-entry pool and a waterslide -- much nicer facilities than the Ys we have in the Chicago area. One of my favorite parts of the trip was seeing all the cranes. We hear their distinctive calls when they migrate overhead in the spring. Now we know where these magnificent birds spend their summers. On our last morning as we packed up, a crane stood on the pier, the brilliant red feathers on its head shining in the sun. A perfect end to a perfect trip! We’re already planning our next visit. p.s. This would make a great writer’s retreat in any season. There's strong wifi and three distinct spaces for writing. The library is surrounded on three sides with windows overlooking the woods. The screened porch overlooks the lake, and the dining room has long table with plenty of room to spread out your notes. You’re in a serene setting, surrounded by books, not far from coffee shops, and there's no TV to distract you."

  • Wonderful Stay - Wonderful Host!

    "Truly enjoyed our stay at the Fox River cottage. Nice setup. very comfortable, and wonderful hosts. Bob and his family have the cottage outfitted with virtually everything you need and comforts of home. The setting is private, and the view is beautiful. The cottage is located in a small community - so you can enjoy country living, yet only a relatively short drive to virtually everything - including downtown Milwaukee, Lake Geneva and surrounding communities. Bob - thank you for opening your home to us, and allowing us to spend time with friends and family here in Wisconsin. We will definitely be back - and highly recommend. Thank you Bob!"

  • Cozy in any weather.

    "This is a very clean and cozy cottage right in front of the lake. The view is phenomenal and the home very clean! It has a lot of character and makes for a very comfortable stay. The outside space is aplenty for kids, catching a ball, etc. Neighbors and their pets are very friendly too. My timing was not the best weather-wise, but we still had a great time. I can only imagine it is much better during warmer weather."
